Joe Hart intends to fend off competition from Tom Heaton and Nick Pope over the course of the season to remain Burnley’s first-choice keeper.

The 31-year-old arrived at Turf Moor from Manchester City in a cut-price £3.5m transfer earlier this week, having spent the last two campaigns out on loan with Torino and West Ham United.
Hart, who produced one big save in particular to tip a Jack Stephens effort past the post, told BBC Sport after the match: “We played really well in the first half but they changed it round at half time and pushed us in the second half.
“I think we’re both happy with a point in the end. I push myself to the edge in all I do. I’m really pleased to be at this club and to be here permanently. I’ve walked into a nest of top keepers and I’ll have to be on my toes if I want to keep the shirt.”
